I'm finally back again!!! Teehee... I guess I haven't been much into blogging for the past few months... Because its funny that whenever I start to type, the things that I wanted to blog about suddenly disappear... More like, I can't remember. Haha... So instead, I've been writing inside my own diary, which is now more than three-quarters filled. Okay... I admit most of the content is actually quite depressing and sad and whatever negative words you can think of, but the dates between each consecutive entry is now of a wider span. Does what I just said make any sense? Well, basically it means that I'm becoming less depressed, less sad, less negative. It doesn't mean that I've totally transformed into a bright and cheery sunflower, but at least I'm improving. And for the first time in my whole entire life, I'm sure of what I want for myself. I know how I'm going to shape my personality and character to someone I recognise and like. Maybe some of you will just think that I'm turning into a bitch. And maybe sometimes I do end up being a bitch to you. But thats because I'm sick of being the soft-hearted, compliant old me. Yup. Thats what I come up with when I think of myself in the past. I just hope you guys can accept me for who I'm going to become. If we're truly friends, I know you will.
Now... Time for some tiny updates about my life. I suppose you guys would know that I'm officially with Gray now. ^.^! What I'm going to say next is probably going to cast me in bad light, but I'm still going to say it: I no longer blame myself for what happened between him and Van. Thats all. I'm not going to elaborate on details since thats all in the past.
I guess time really flies in some sense. Its already three weeks since I finished my 'O' Levels and I'm still job-hunting. Some of the people I called are really rude. They just abruptly tell you that you're "too young" and slam the phone on you without further comment. That 4-day stint working for IKEA was really fun. Although I don't know why they posted me to Alexandra instead of Tampines, I'm still happy. It was a really great experience. Well... my main job was just to blow up the balloons and give them away to the kids, but I ended up helping with the freebie distributors as well, since we were pretty short-handed. The balloons part was fun. Those kids are just so cute that you forget all your tiredness when they smile at you and say "Thank you". And some adults are just as happy to accept balloons from you too. BUT. Its a totally different case for the Famnig, which is actually a small heart with two hands that you can put around your wrist or do whatever you like with it (the hands can be joined together with Velcro). Okay. That was just a brief explanation in case some of you don't know what I was talking about. Anyway, back onto the topic of giving away Famnigs. You'd be surprised at how kiasu Singaporeans can be. One customer is actually entitled to one Famnig, but you get
1) people who ask for three or four or five
2) people who ask "is it free?" And when you tell them, yes it's free, they ask for extras
3) people who can't wait and just stretch their hands into the bag containing the Famnigs
I totally agree with one of the other part-timers. You see, there was this auntie who asked for five of those cute little hearts as she had five grandsons and she didn't want them to fight over only one Famnig. Dennis actually told her that she might as well not take a single one. Then her grandchildren won't fight over something that they don't know about. LOL. Luckily he told the auntie he was just kidding. If not, the auntie might have complained against him. Haha. And there was Yan Cheng. Totally hardworking man... You tell him to do something and he really does it without complaining. Haha. Some of the part-timers who came on the second day were terrible though. They're actually university students who are on holiday, but they act like secondary students. These are girls who have to stick together even when they're working, and totally do not understand the meaning of taking initiative to help others who are busy with other stuff. Noooo... They can just stand there and chit-chat away when they're supposed to be giving out some other freebies. And when you give them a fifteen minute break, they disappear for half an hour. For goondu's sake. These people are suppposed to be twenty years old. Is it wrong to expect a higher maturity level, more self-discipline and initiative in them?
Oh yeah. The OSIM guy. Micky or Nicky. Haha. Forgot his name. But he was quite friendly with me and Wan Yang. Nice chatting with him. And a great thank-you to him for helping us refill the bags with Famnigs on the last day when we were too busy to do it ourselves. =)
Haha. I guess I better stop ranting on about those four days of working at IKEA. But I'd definitely go back and work for them if I ever get the chance. The job duties may be vastly different, but the people there are really friendly and nice. They make you feel as though you've been working there for years instead of days. In any case though, its over. Now I'm just waiting for my pay. And looking out for another job. Haha. Anyone who got lobang just intro me okies? ^.^!
